"Assassin's Creed Origins" launches on October 27, but some gamers might be wondering whether their PC can handle it. Ubisoft just released the minimum and recommended specs for the next entry in the action-adventure franchise, so it is time to check out how demanding it is set to be.

This article will go through both the minimum and recommended settings, so let us get right to it.


"Assassin's Creed Origins" offers a huge open world to explore, with a fair amount of moving parts, so a decent GPU and CPU are needed. The minimum settings are for 720p resolution, so please take that into account.

A Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD R9 270 should be enough to get this one up and running on the lowest settings. Video card benchmark rates the GTX 660 at 4122, just above the GTX 750 TI. The AMD graphics card is around the same range, with an average rating of 4264. In terms of RAM, 6GB are the bare minimum required for "Assassin's Creed Origins."

Shifting focus towards the recommended settings, Ubisoft lists the GTX 760 and the AMD R9 280X as solid cards to achieve a good performance on high. Any high-end PC should be well beyond what is required from the GPU for the latest entry in the franchise.


Now it's time to discuss the processing speed recommended for "Assassin's Creed Origins." For the minimum settings, an Intel Core i5-2400 or an AMD FX-6359 are the basic entry points.

The former requires at-least 2.5 GHz, with CPU benchmark rating the processor at an average score of 4935. The AMD component is considerably stronger, with an average rating of 6967.

When it comes to recommended settings, Ubisoft suggests aiming for at least an Intel Core i7-3770 with a processing speed of 3.5 GHz. For AMD gaming computers, an FX-8350 should be enough to run "Assassin's Creed Origins" on high settings at 1080p.

Obviously, 8GB of RAM is listed as the ideal amount.

"Assassin's Creed Syndicate" came out two years ago, so fans are ready for a return to the series. Due to the buggy launch of "Unity," the franchise saw a decline in sales for the follow-up release, despite being a substantial improvement over its predecessor. Ubisoft decided to take a year off, to try and regain some of the lost momentum.

"Origins" has a few changes in game-play, with the combat shifting towards a more action-oriented style. The series was starting to get stale, with only minor changes to the actual mechanics. This is the first time in awhile that a new release feels exciting.
